Quest Outdoors will be hosting a BOAT DEMO DAY on Friday, May 28th 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM It will be located at the lake over at Long Run Park – just a few minutes from the Middletown exit off Snyder.
There is no fee involved, several boats will be available along with PFDs and paddles to use. I understand representatives from boat companies may be coming down as well with additional boats. It is a good chance to try out multiple boats to compare and see how each boat performs. In addition, the staff will be there to answer any questions you might have in choosing the right boat, transporting, what accessories you will need etc. * I will also post a message in the boards to discuss this meetup and to answer any specific questions you might have * This really is a great opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ – Not to mention I think it sounds fun! Also, on an unrelated note, I was thinking maybe afterwards we could get together for a late dinner at El Nopal Mexican Restaurant in Middletown. 12937 Shelbyville Rd Louisville, KY 40243 (502)[masked] Just an idea, we can always discuss the day of. Map of the area:
Meet other local Paddlers to plan trips and meetups, talk about local rivers, creeks, and kayak gear.
We are mostly beginner and intermediate paddlers, but all levels and ages welcome!
Trips we have gone on so far have been leisurely paddles on calm waters exploring lakes, creeks and slow moving rivers.
There is no membership fee, nor is there a charge to attend events. We keep this possible due to our amazing sponsors Quest Outdoors and Skipping Fish boat school. They make gracious donations to our Christmas party every year in the form of prizes for the raffle, and use of their facility.
If you do not own a boat, we do have members kind enough to loan out kayaks on occasion. The best thing to do is just ask around or keep an eye out for anyone offering up a boat for use.
Although we are based in Louisville, we welcome members from all nearby locations, including a loyal following of active members from Southern Indiana.
Also - we will occasionally schedule informal, social meetups to get to know each other better, ask questions and gather ideas for future trips. Everyone is, of course, welcome (and encouraged) to attend.
